Premier XL & Netflix. Signin w/remote?

Haven't used Netflix for a while. Wanted to watch something. Went to Netflix. It asked me to sign in using my (non-slide) Tivo remote.
Is this possible? I looked through the manual. Went back and forth several times. Never saw how to enter alpha characters. Did I just miss it?

As I remember, when I set up the service all I had to do was enter an activation code.

Is this what all the complaining is about?

I'm disgusted w/the Tivo program guide. I can get Netflix through my blu-ray.

Wondering if it's time to sell the Tivo, cancel Netflix, downgrade my internet, and buy the Channelmaster or "generic" HD dvr. With Me TV, Retro TV, Antenna TV, and This TV, PBS, and some local independent stations, I always have soemthing to watch.

The new app requires signin, it doesn't use the activation code like the old one. If you notice when it asks for your email and password the email box is dark, this is because it's selected. If you click the Select button on the remote with that highlighted it will bring up an onscreen keyboard to type it in with. Same applies to the password.

Sign to Netflix app.

Done. Thank You. I read the instructions again. They do say press SELECT.

Overlooked it.
